I want to let people know that in the upcoming weeks, we're going to be resuming our Celebrity Chats with Gerry Dawes, America's leading expert on Spanish food and wine, James Beard Award finalist, winner of the Silver Spoon Award (tribute written by José Andrés), and founder of the Spanish Artisan Wine Group which is going to become the most important importer of Spanish wines in the United States. I've had the pleasure of traveling to Spain with Gerry, who was the inspiration for this Washingtonian article, and I have seen firsthand just how much he is feared and respected as one of the world's preeminent experts on Spanish gastronomy and wine. There is, quite simply, nobody outside of Spain who could possibly have a better combined knowledge of the two subjects. From a personal point of view, Gerry's palate and mine are nearly identical - he appreciates wines that you drink, instead of wines that you merely taste. In particular, wines that you drink with food - I've witnessed firsthand his genius in pairing wines with food, and there's nobody that can do it better. If you have any interest at all in the food and wines of Spain, make sure to register and become a member of donrockwell.com. It's quick, easy, and free, and it will allow you to participate in the upcoming chat. Gerry left just yesterday for Spain, then has an extremely busy schedule when he returns, so look for this chat to begin shortly after the presidential election.
